Picture of my ten year old queen.

At least that's what she told me. "I've lived here ten years and had bees all that time."
Not that I doubt her, of course.

I knew the story as soon as I opened her up. Cocoons everywhere from the moths and once the comb was out I could see the imprint of at least three different sets of combs. The all to common tale of two to three and collapse followed by swarm and repeat. :(
At least they now have a chance.

By the by, I really do appreciate all y'all marking the queens, it sure makes it easier on me when y'all lose them.

And for those who have been marking their queens with the same color marker for the last 10 years........
